Baker/Folsom “White Line” pad, no doubt.

I know I’m impressed.

Best,
Ted

hmmm...lot of wear on front of action, for a never used gun.
Is that a repaired crack at the rear of the left lock plate?

And barrels with KRUPP stamped in crude block lettering on the barrels flats are especially rare... as is AAAA Exibition grade wood that is so highly figured that the figure went back to relatively straight. And those buggered screws... simply magnificent!

The 1957 letter was a masterpiece. Some of the best fiction writing I've seen... next to King.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Well it is nicer than his Purdey in 1957...only better as it has more case color.

Wow, what a piss poor investment. Adjusted for inflation, that $3780.00 gun in 1957 would be worth $33,795.00 in today's dollars. So we are looking at a terrible investment over time. Worse I doubt he could get a third of his asking price unless the buyer was blind, deaf, dumb and stupid. Nice prototype White Line recoil pad. It does look like you can see the barrel makers marks and they don't look like Krupp to me. Thanks for the laugh.

Dave: the "Krupp Custom" barrels were made by Laurent Lochet-Habran. The 'LLH' is still visible forward of the right flats

Huumm- interesting, as my 1927 era Ithaca NID 2E 12 gauge has the LLH barrel stamp as well- By 1927, we were "out of the loop" for Krupp Flustahl barrels- WW1 and all that.

Haha!!!! The letter is pure comedy. That was fun. :-)

You know....I’ve always kinda liked Bakers. They’re just a really nostalgic type of gun. Just seeing an old Baker gives me the warm fuzzies. I owned a 16 gauge Baker Batavia Special with early [censored]-tensile steel barrels, I shot a lot of doves and pheasants with that gun when I lived in Nebraska...it was a good blue collar, working grade gun.

Funny letter and I agree with LeFusil on the Baker guns. I have a B grade and two Paragons. Rather nice guns. I like them better than LC's. Weird, I know.
